Volunteers

Most people at KVIN are volunteers. We need new volunteers to keep up to date and grow. Are you a people person, can you help VI volunteers to record names, addresses and other information? Or can you help VI volunteers to teach other VIs to use technologies by reading on screen info, helping to organise equipment or demonstrate how to use equipment or software once you are confident to do so. You don’t have to be a ‘techie’ to do this. We will train you.

Are you looking to gain skills and experience to help you back into employment?

A Volunteers Story

Sam is a registered blind mum from Kirklees, who has been volunteering for KVIN since June 2017.

She says, ‘I met a KVIN volunteer through social media, who suggested I might like to get involved. I now run the organisations social media and offer peer support. Since joining the charity I have had the opportunity to learn new skills such as website building, and made a number of new friends. I would definitely recommend volunteering to others. ‘
